Don’t Like Flossing? Try Interdental Brushing

Filed Under: Personal Care at 5:16 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Dental flossing has multiple health benefits. Regular flossing can decrease risk of gum disease (such as gingivitis), remove plaque in between teeth, polish tooth surfaces and improve breath.

However, only about 40% of Americans floss regularly and only 10% do it on a daily basis. If you don’t like flossing or you find it awkward or difficult, Lucky Vitamin offers several alternative ways to clean the tiny areas between your teeth.

Interdental toothpicks have been the only alternative for many years, a very simple method that seems to work fairly well for some people. The most recent toothpick products have significantly improved and can safely remove food debris without damaging the gums.

However, a new dental cleaning device has become very popular and is one of the hottest items on Lucky Vitamin.com: Interdental brushes.
Interdental brushes are safe and easy to use. For effective cleaning, it’s important that you select the proper brush size which will fit your interdental spaces. Unless advised by your dentist, don’t use toothpaste on these tiny brushes and if you do, just use very little.

It’s very simple to use interdental toothbrushes. Use a straight brush for front teeth at gum level. Insert the brush gently between your teeth. Move the brush full length back and forth a few times to remove plaque and debris. Between the back teeth, where the cheek sometimes makes it difficult to reach, access may be improved if you slightly curve the soft neck by adding pressure with your finger.

Make sure to always rinse brush in clean water during and after use, just like any regular toothbrush.
